David's Little Indian

by Margaret Wise Brown and Remy Charlip, 1956

This tiny book fits in your hand like the little Indian on the cover.

Our favorite Margaret Wise Brown story and another top-notch illustration treatment by Charlip.
And to make certain he was real, the little boy pushed him...

"What day is it?" asked the boy.
...the little Indian answered, "...Day of the first nut that fell... Day of the little blue dish... Day of the cold nose..."

FAVORITE LINE: "Day of the dreary grown-ups."

Blood mingling. Probably not a good idea.

In our inscribed copy, Mr. Charlip gives us the original title.
